Get Involved

At St Paul’s Cathedral, we are committed to extending our ministry beyond our regular congregations and towards those who need it most.

Migrants and refugees, children and senior citizens are just some of those we seek to reach and assist through our group programs, fundraising initiatives and social activism.

Unfortunately due to COVID-19 Restrictions many of our programs and activities are either suspended or meeting online. Please email welcome@stpaulscathedral.org.au for further information about our programs. We hope to resume them when we are able to, please keep following our website or social media for updates.

English Conversation Corner

St Paul’s Cathedral and St James’ Old Cathedral, West Melbourne together run an English class program called English Conversation Corner.  It is to help those who want to improve their English speaking skills.

Unfortunately, due to ongoing COVID-19 Restrictions our English Conversation Corner program has been suspended until further notice. We hope to resume when we are able to – please keep an eye on our website for further information.

Reconciliation

Wominjeka – Welcome

St Paul’s Cathedral stands on the traditional lands of the Kulin nation. We acknowledge and pay our respects to their elders past and present, and to all Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islanders.

We are committed to the work of reconciliation.

Science Week at the Cathedral

Each August, St Paul’s Cathedral engages with National Science Week and runs several activities that explore the chosen theme from the perspective of the science-religion interface.

In an increasingly global and secular scientific culture, saturated with technology and the market, the science-faith conversation is at the cutting edge of Christian engagement. Our purpose is to help equip Christians for that engagement.

Let’s Fully Welcome Refugees

As Cathedrals and Dioceses across Australia joined St Paul’s Cathedral’s 2014 awareness campaign to fully welcome refugees, the Dean wrote:

Twice a week, young people from overseas come to St Paul’s Cathedral Melbourne for a few hours’ English conversation, followed by a shared meal. All of them are new arrivals to Australia. Many of them are refugees. Volunteers from churches across the city teach them English, and help them make sense of their experiences in Australia. Just as important as making them welcome in their new setting, though, is providing a listening ear to their stories.
